Report: Sony's Entire Truck of Gear Stolen on the Way to NAB
« on: April 17, 2017, 11:27:48 AM »
We’re hearing reports from a solid source that a truck carrying all of Sony’s NAB gear was stolen on the way to Las Vegas for the show, which takes place next week. Additionally, we’re told Sony had some third party manufacturers gear on the truck which was to be used alongside Sony’s gear in their booth.

We have reached out to Sony for comment, but haven’t heard back as of yet.

More to come as we hear more…

If true, ouch.   But much like car shows and such I'd expect their gear -- especially the pre-production new hotness -- would be GPS tagged somehow, right?

Sort of confirmed?

Originally, SAR just picked up CR's story, but they appear to have corroborated it:

"I can confirm the truck was indeed stolen. I’m from a partner company that’s helping scramble in getting replacement supplies. I found out this morning and actually googled to see if there was any news reports online yet. Our products were also on the truck."


SAR is much more on the CW side than the CR side as far as rumor reliability goes, so take the above with a grain of salt until someone more reputable corroborates it.  Still no word from PP, DPR, etc.

Nah! It's AvTvM cornering the market in Sony cameras so when people see the light and realise how stupid Canon are his shares in Sony will rise.

My money is on Dilbert. It has been a while since we've seen him around here. He might have spent the time planning this Sony robbery.  ::)

alternate news flash.  Upon opening the truck, the perpetrators saw it was SONY equipment and ran the truck off the road and abandoned it.

Sony officials state that the truck was recovered with all contents accounted for.
